Building my fuselage in Phx. Az. Really hot, dripped sweat, "one drop" on skin. Tried to wipe off with rag. Didn't come off. I think it etched into the aluminum. I wiped off with lacquer thinner and it took it down to a dark metal finish. Will coating it with zinc-chromate primer keep the spot from getting worse?

You can easily polish the dark stain off with a fine Scotchbrite pad. It's a nuisance for those of us who live in a hot climate.
